Fall Roasted Tomato Soup

This makes the perfect soup for a cool Fall evening dinner and uses up those last few tomatoes in the garden before the frost hits!

This recipe is adapted from a guest post on That Skinny Chick Can Bake blog!  The soup is absolutely delicious and so satisfying.

Serve it with the Dutch Oven No Knead Bread and voila - you have some great comfort food after a couple of whirlwind weeks before and after a special wedding!!!!

Here is the recipe:

2 - 2 1/2 lbs. fresh tomatoes - peeled and quartered
1 yellow onion - quartered
1 jalapeno pepper - seeded and halved - I used a Habenaro pepper
4 cloves garlic
1/4 Cup Olive Oil
1/2 tsp. dried oregano - I also added a few sprigs of fresh oregano and some fresh parsley from my herb garden
sea salt to taste
1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper
4 Cups chicken stock - I used Organic Chicken Stock
Fresh Basil - chopped to garnish
Freshly grated Parmesan Cheese to garnish

Place prepared vegetables in a glass baking dish, season, drizzle with olive oil and roast in a preheated to 450 degree oven for 30 - 35 minutes, till vegetables look caramelized.

Add roasted veggies to a stock pot, add the chicken stock and simmer for 20 minutes.  Taste and adjust seasoning.

Cool slightly and puree mixture in the blender (blending 1/2 at a time).  Use your immersion blender if you are lucky enough to have one (I have to remember to put this on my Christmas wish list!).

Serve with grated Parmesan Cheese and a garnish of chopped fresh Basil.

The farmer wasn't home for supper so I refrigerated the soup overnight and served it the next evening with the fresh baked bread.  Ultimate comfort food!!!!

Thanks Lizzy for this link!  Be sure to check out her blog - it's always packed with goodness......

Till next time.........enjoy the Golden Days of Fall!!!!


  1. I can taste it already....this is on my make list!

  2. YUM!! i need to make this too, Mom! xoBex

  3. Mom taught me how to make homemade tomato soup but it is just made on top of the stove. I need to try your recipe. It sounds delicious! Where is the recipe for the bread? Laura

    1. Hi Laura - if you click on the red words that read "Dutch Oven No Knead Bread" in the above post - the blog post where that recipe is on will appear - hopefully :). Let me know if it doesn't work for you. BTW the secret for this recipe is - don't skimp on the garlic - it is what really makes the flavour yummy!

  4. looks like a perfect soup. I just finished canning my salsa...and I have enough tomatoes left for this recipe.
    I loved your burlap runners on your previous post and those wooden slats. My daughter looked at all of those, but I told her my machine would not be able to work with we used a similar color in burlap. So much fun.

  5. The soup sounds great Rosella. A must try on a busy activity night.
    Is your relish recipe (from the wedding) on your blog somewhere? Nancy

  6. Yeah Nancy - it worked!! Yes, the relish recipe is at this link:

    Hope that works for you.

  7. Oh, aren't you sweet, Rosella! So glad you enjoyed this one :)

  8. Tomatoes are still growing outside but the mountain passes got the first snow dusting yesterday. The heat is on and I am wearing winter clothes...nine days ago it was a tank top and shorts. Soup season has arrived! Thanks for the recipe!
